The talk by His Excellency Mr George Katrougalos on the Future of the EU from a Greek Perspective was timely in view of the recent 2019 European Parliament elections which His Excellency spoke about. He viewed the outcome of the election as generally positive as the voter participation was above 50 percent for the first time in 20 years. He added that there may be three possible ways that a new majority might be formed in the European Parliament: one could be a centre majority led by French President Emmanuel Macron’s party LREM and ALDE, another could be a huge coalition of the Left, including Macron, or a third which His Excellency felt was unlikely to be realised: a coalition of the European People’s Party with political parties that fell more to the far right of the political spectrum.
